North Sea

North Sea

The small hamlet of North Sea in the Suffolk County township of Southampton is both unassuming and distinguished. Part of a chain of tiny bay-front communities tucked between Sag Harbor, Bridgehampton and Southampton on Long Island's South Fork, it was founded in 1640 as New York's first English colony. A commemorative boulder bears a plaque marking the spot¿¿¿Conscience Point¿¿¿where the town's founders first came ashore. The original one-room schoolhouse that was built here remains today as part of what is now the North Sea Community Association.

Though surrounded by some of the state's most prized real estate, life here is more about nature, water and sea air than parties and property lines. Days are spent boating, fishing, and clamming around West Neck Creek, Scallop Pond, Big and Little Fresh Pond and watching perfect sunsets on Little Peconic Bay. The farm stand at North Sea Farms is a popular stop for fresh produce. The waterfront communities within North Sea and around rugged North Sea Harbor are friendly, and streets are quiet at night, though Southampton Village, Sag Harbor Village and East Hampton with their fine dining, shopping and cultural destinations are minutes away.

Homes here vary from seaside cottages to spacious traditional homes on wooded lots. The historic landing spot at Conscience Point is now a National Wildlife Refuge and songbird sanctuary on 60 acres.
